|Intestinal Disease, Parasitic Chronic Disease||Diagnostic Test: Tests for diagnosis of intestinal parasitic diseases|
It is estimated that 75% of the world's population is infected with parasites and although parasitic diseases are mostly observed in the poor tropical and subtropical countries, there are also many diseases caused by parasites in Poland. In Poland, particular attention is paid to the following parasitic diseases closely related to the digestive system: giardiasis, taeniasis (including cysticercosis), ascariasis, cryptosporidiosis, toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, echinococcosis.
Symptoms of such invasions may include: allergic rhinitis of unknown origin, chronic fatigue or food intolerance. Moreover, many of them are asymptotic, therefore the study group will consist of both healthy people and individuals with undiagnosed diseases or/and chronic symptoms.

- Intestinal parasites [ Time Frame: 1 day (single evaluation of current samples) ]The fecal samples will be assessed qualitavely in terms of life forms of parasites present in human intestine, i.e.: eggs and larvas of flukes, tapeworms and nematodes, as well as protozoa trophozoites and cysts.
- Giardia antigen test [ Time Frame: 1 day (single evalutaion of all samples through study completion) ]Stool test for Giardia lamblia antigen (ELISA kit)
